The journey begins with clay, a material found exclusively in Fes City, particularly in the renowned place called "Ben Jellik." The clay is carefully collected and left to dry for 20 days. Once dry, it is broken into smaller pieces using large hammers. After another day of drying, it is soaked in water for two days. Skilled craftsmen meticulously clean the clay, removing unwanted rocks and impurities, ensuring the highest quality for their creations. This unique activity is exclusive to Fes City, with its close relationship to the sun.
Devoted artisans then shape the clay into exquisite flower vases, jars, plates, and more, all meticulously crafted by hand. This craft is an inherited tradition that showcases the skill and artistry passed down through generations.
The handmade products are placed in an oven and baked for 8 hours at a scorching temperature of 2000°C. The next step involves painting the products with natural-based colors sourced from the wonders of nature. Paintbrushes made from horsehair are used, carefully applying different hues such as blue, red, and black. To add a magnificent shine, a special coating is applied before returning the products to the oven for another 8 hours, baking on burned wood. The result is a mirror that can withstand daily use, allowing you to enjoy it while using cold or hot water, with the paint boasting exceptional longevity.
Moving to the intricate art of Zellige, the clay undergoes two rounds of baking. After the second baking with paint, it is entrusted to a skilled Nekkach who determines the pattern based on where the Zellige will be placed. Inspired by ancient references such as Karaouiyn and the king's palaces, the Zellige pieces are expertly arranged in a mesmerizing geometric pattern. Using a material called "La resin" or "cola sima," the pieces are left to dry before being flipped to reveal the breathtaking design. This meticulous workmanship embodies the true essence of clay craft in the city of Fes.
